CONLON WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered today that high doses of vitamins A and D be placed on a prescription-only basis. It also laid down plans for other general restrictions on sale of vitamins. The order on vitamins A and D takes effect in 60 days. The FDA issued a final order on the matter, the most controversial of its proposal. The other restrictions will take effect at the end of 1974. The FDA said there was evidence that Vitamin A in heavy doses can cause pressure inside the skull that may mimic the symptoms of a brain tumor, and may also cause retarded growth in children. Vitamin D in high doses has also been known to retard mental and physical growth in children, the agency added. The other major rule says that any vitamin, food supplement or food containing more than 150 per cent of the recommended daily allowance of any vitamin shall be classified as a drug;' Once classified as drugs such products may continue to be sold over the counter the way cough medicines and aspirins are now. But they will be subject to review by the PDA as drugs and some may later be put on a prescription basis or banned entirely. The health food industry contends that some of the proposals would cause many vitamin products now on the market to disappear and would restrict a person's freedom to choose what medicine he wants to take. FDA commissioner Alexander Schmidt rejected objections to the rules. Schmidt said in a statement: "Much of the opposition is based on honest fears of concerned citizens," he said "Some fear that the FDA is going'to make certain vitamin pills unavailable or if available then only with a prescription and at a higher cost. Others fear that the FDA may infringe on their right to decide what they wilj eat. "None of this is true. The single, most important purpose and effect of the regulation is to require full and honest labeling." Effective 60 days from today, Vitamin A in doses above 10,000 international units and Vitamin D in doses above 400 international units will be subject to prescription sales only. The effective date of the proposal on classifying some products with high vitamin content as drugs is Dec. 31, 1974, although any labels on vitamin products covered by the rule printed after this year must comply with the new rule. Another regulation states that vitamins,, in,, combination, .with substances which have no scientifically recognized nutritional valuer will' be banned as of the end of next year. The health food industry estimates that perhaps 90 per cent of such combination products will have to be reformulated and that an unknown number of them will disappear from the market because no proof can be offered of nutritional value. Legislation to undo the impact of the FDA regulation has been pending for months in a House Commerce subcommittee. Despite perhaps one million letters of protest, it is given little chance of moving. One health food lobbyist predicted however that finalization of the rules would force congressional hearings on the legislation. liam Larson. Capt. Larson is a public service officer stationed at a Thailand air force base. A Henry County coroner's jury ruled Tuesday that the death of Frank A. Tooley, 62, resulted from natural causes. Tooley, who listed a Bloomington address, was found dead in his room Sunday at the Galva Hotel. He had lived there about three weeks. A journalist and free-lance writer, Tooley was a charter member of the Chicago Press Corps and once worked for the Chicago Tribune. He later worked as a free-lance writer and more recently as a golf equipment salesman. Coroner Dr. Glen I. Case told the jurors Tuesday that Tooley had been estranged from his wife and children for more than 20 years. He had a history of cardiovascular disease, Case said. Case explained that Tuesday's inquest was necessary before Tcoley's personal property could be sold. He reportedly owned an automobile, typewriter and other items.
